Four Seasons Hotel Sydney

Four Seasons Hotel Sydney Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Four Seasons Hotel Sydney is a luxurious city center hotel aimed at business travelers with expense accounts. With 531 rooms, it's the largest Four Seasons in the chain's portfolio, and the constant coming and going of guests -- the majority of whom are business travelers -- gives this central Sydney hotel a busy, and somewhat impersonal, ambience. Rooms have all-marble bathrooms and oversize flat-screen TVs, but the decor is noticeably bland, lacking the luxurious look and feel that one might expect from such a high-priced hotel. That said, the amenities are extensive and high quality, and include a swimming pool, well-equipped gym, and spa with sauna and steam rooms. There are also a bar and two restaurants, although the poolside restaurant is only open seasonally and the other is closed for lunch on weekends and dinner on Sundays. Fortunately, 24-hour room service is available and guests can fill up at the big (and expensive) buffet breakfast, served daily.
Pullman Sydney Hyde Park

Pullman Sydney Hyde Park Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Located just off Hyde Park in Darlinghurst is an upscale, business-oriented property with many meeting spaces and a business center (though there's a fee to use the Internet). However, many guests feel it doesn't live up to its advertised five-star status. Though common spaces feel posh -- the lobby exudes class and sophistication with fresh orchids, marble floors, and a cozy guest lounge -- rooms are typical of a nicer Pullman hotels, with chain-like contemporary decor and flat-screen TVs. The kitchenette amenities, including microwaves, coffeemakers, and toasters, are a bonus, however, and some rooms have high-end bathrooms with soaking tubs. The classy Windows on the Park restaurant, with its beautiful views of Hyde Park, is worthy of a luxury hotel, as if the rooftop pool with great city views -- but the small fitness center, not so much.
Blue Sydney - A Taj Hotel

Blue Sydney - A Taj Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The unique Blue Sydney was originally a 1,310-foot long wharf built in 1911 on Woolloomooloo Bay. The architecture and decor of this luxury boutique hotel retain this history, mixing bits of the industrial warehouse look with a chic, modern design. The 100 rooms and lofts have posh, nautical style, as well as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi (for a fee) -- but show some minor wear and tear. It's part of the Taj hotel chain, and is certainly one of the most luxurious hotels in Sydney -- located in a popular dining destination, near high-end restaurants and bars. The hotel's own on-site hot spot, WaterBar, is an impressive cathedral-meets-warehouse lounge with an extensive food and cocktail menu, stylish seating, stunning high ceilings and an overall ultra-cool ambiance. But it's a bit removed from more popular areas, such as the Central Business District.
Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney

Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This bright, contemporary luxury hotel, located in the Central Business District, just south of The Rocks and Circular Quay, reflects Sydney's personality: relaxed and stylish. The bi-level lobby/lounge area features floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the city. The minimalist rooms have minibars, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and (in some) beautiful harbor or city views -- but a few are showing minor wear, and lower-level rooms look plain. One of the best features of the rooms are the modern tile bathrooms, which have walk-in showers and separate large soaking tubs. Outside the rooms, the hotel has two trendy restaurants and two bars, a tiny fitness center, a small but contemporary spa, and an attractive indoor pool. For business travelers, there are two large conference spaces that can accommodate up to 280 guests; leisure travelers will likely appreciate the location, within walking distance to popular sights.
ADGE Apartment Hotel

ADGE Apartment Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Located in the trendy, artsy Surry Hills neighborhood just south of Sydney's CBD, the ADGE Apartment Hotel offers colorful two-bedroom apartments with full kitchens, washer/dryers, and luxurious bathrooms (two per apartment). Unlike at many Sydney hotels, Wi-Fi here is free, but there are no other business facilities to speak of, and while the lobby has enough tables and chairs to make it a plausible venue for an informal meeting, some guests might find the gigantic multi-colored psychedelic mural of Mickey Mouse and company a little distracting. There's an on-site restaurant serving Italian food, tapas, and a selection of wines, and the hotel offers a unique type of room service: in-room hairstyling. On-site parking is available for a fee, and the location is reasonably close to attractions such as the Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach for guests with a car. Those in search of an apartment hotel right in the heart of things might want to check out the Quay West Suites Sydney in The Rocks, which offers more traditional (i.e., less colorful and trendy) apartments and has extras such as a pool and a fitness center.
Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour

Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 68 suites at Pullman Quay Grand Suites don't come cheap -- for a reason. These chic one- and two-bedroom apartment-style units look out over peaceful green gardens or the busy but beautiful harbor, and have floor-to-ceiling windows; modern, minimalist decor; big kitchens; dining areas; and cozy living rooms. They're perhaps not quite as luxurious as some may expect for the price, but they're still among Sydney's best accommodations. Amenities include a peaceful indoor pool and small, unexceptional fitness room. The property also features a fine dining restaurant and a trendy bar, both with great harbor views. It's a prime place to stay with an excellent location in Circular Quay, but with rates this high, the fees for Wi-Fi and parking feel like nickel-and-diming.
Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 296-room Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach is an upscale business hotel located in Brighton-Le-Sands, a beachside community near the airport. All the rooms and suites here have private balconies, many with gorgeous ocean views (though the seaside is actually across the road). On-site facilities are great for business travelers; along with 11 meeting spaces, there's a restaurant, a bar, and lots of opportunities for exercise at the well-equipped (but cramped) fitness center or out on the tennis courts. There's also an indoor lap pool, an outdoor freeform pool with a hot tub, and a spa offering massages and beauty treatments. However, while the beachside location makes it a good place for those who want to spend their vacation by the shore, it's not convenient for people who want to take in the sites of Sydney, especially those relying on public transportation. The Mercure Sydney offers a better location in the Central Business District and has similar amenities to what's found in the Novotel, including a pool and a fitness center.
Mercure Sydney

Mercure Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls

On central Sydney's busy George Street, the Mercure Sydney is an upscale business hotel with 517 simple, modern, and very purple rooms and suites, some with spectacular city views. The two bars and restaurant provide reasonably priced pub fare and Australian dishes, as well as 24-hour room service, but there's a fee for breakfast. Other amenities include an indoor pool, a sauna, and a fitness room, not to mention a self-serve laundry room with a waiting area. There are eight conference and meeting spaces on-site, along with a business center, but guests should expect to pay extra for Wi-Fi. Travelers who plan to spend a lot of time online may want to compare rates at the Metro Hotel on the Pitt, another centrally located four-pearl that offers free Wi-Fi.
Medusa Hotel

Medusa Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Medusa Hotel is a quirky, 18-room boutique hotel with artsy flair. It has the look and feel of a converted house, with a cozy fireplace in the lobby and a painting that depicts the property's namesake. Rooms are on the small side, but have a contemporary look with bright accent walls, muted geometric patterns, and modern platform beds. Each room has a kitchenette that features a microwave, coffeemaker, and minibar, and flat-screen TVs are accompanied by DVD players and small stereo systems. All-white bathrooms are basic but functional and come stocked with Aveda bath products. Amenities are few: no pool, fitness center or restaurant, and a one-computer business center. There is a small outdoor courtyard with a slender, decorative pool, however, and guests get free access to a nearby swimming pool and gym. The Darlinghurst location is within walking distance of the bars and clubs in Kings Cross and on Oxford Street.
The Grace Hotel Sydney

The Grace Hotel Sydney Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The historic, luxurious Grace Hotel is known for its beautiful Art Deco style, especially in the hotel's lobby. The rooms, however, lack similar charm. While spacious and comfortable, the rooms are decorated in a plain, classic style, with dark wood furniture, white linens, and beige walls. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are sleek and modern with lots of marble and glass rainfall showers. Some guests who have stayed in interior-facing rooms complain of a lack of light -- but these interior rooms also tend to be the quietest of the bunch, so it's a tradeoff. Most guests stay here for the location -- the hotel is right in the middle of Sydney's Central Business District, within walking distance of many attractions. The convenient location and abundant meeting space make it a popular pick with business travelers. But for a luxury hotel, the amenities could be more extensive: There is a rooftop complex with small indoor pool, spa, and fitness center, but there is no quality restaurant on the property -- just a cafe, a bar, and a brasserie that serves a breakfast and lunch buffet.
